PC Pro magazine recently published an article on myths about computers, and I thought it would be a good idea to pass on some of the ones that concern everyday computer users.
Myth No 1
You don’t need to disable memory sticks (based on flash memory technology) from Windows computers by first clicking on the Remove Hardware icon in the system tray. So long as what you’ve copied has been completed, you can happily pull it out without any damage to the memory stick or its contents. So be brave, and have a go next time.
The way that copying is done on Apple Macs (and iPads if you’ve the attachment) means you still have to ‘eject’ any device that you’ve copied from, including camera flash cards.
More next time. Please feel free to leave a comment.
